Our History

Welcome !

Pure Land Buddhist Center of Southern California focuses on nurturing people’s skills to share Buddhism through online lessons as well as by sending missionaries / teachers all over the world. Up to recently, our activities were centered around sharing Buddhism with Japanese communities. But Currently, we have offices in the U.S., Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, as well as the Philippines and expanding all over globe.

Today, as people around the globe show interest in learning Buddhism, we have thought long and hard about how to best convey the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha to people across borders. In an ideal world, we would go everywhere, build a temple, and teach Buddhism in the local language. This would require time and overcoming many hurdles. So, we began to share Buddhism through the Internet, and in English. You are welcome to learn about buddhism from us.
